    Up a creek & no paddle Or "Well Crap"!!!!

    My husbands Q quit charging batteries. In fact when you plug it in to charge a battery it will actually drain the battery. So for the last few days we have been charging it with my phone & then putting battery into his phone when he leaves for the day.
    We can not buy Q9C phone/s w/o paying full price for it/them from Alltel, $429.00 I think is what they want for it. Too much $$ for a now defunct phone.
    We can not buy a Verizon phone yet until maybe around the middle of March if everything goes OK with the upgrades/merger stuff.
    Can not upgrade with a new contract b/c we still have 6/7 months to go until that comes around.
    Can't get a phone from Eb*y b/c dafoxs would hunt me down & yell at me until he can't talk anymore. OK for you guys but not for me on the receiving end of his wrath/sarcasm/yelling. :frown:
    So I bought a battery charger separate from the phone & new battery to try to buy us a few months.

    We were told that is wasn't necessary b/c it was "a Motorola phone after all & very reliable".

    <--Sap

    I believed that b*tch in more ways than one.
    I no longer want to "spit in her eye" now. :wink:

    Everything will work out, it usually does one way or another.

    I have had people tell me how much of a waste the insurance is on phones and how much of a waste getting a warrenty for electronics are. However I know the first time that I dont have insurance or a warrenty, that is when I will have a problem with my device. I look at it as a cost of device to cost of warrent/insurance (I.e. phone insurance 6$/month vs buying brand new phone 300$) so in the life of the 2 year plan the most I'll pay is 144$ for the insurance. Now add into the equation that I get my phone for little or nothing even with that 144 I have never hit the full price of the 300$ phone. So yeah they may be making money off of me however they are not making as much as if something happend to my phone and I did not have the insurance.

    Buy lots @ EQ store but hopefully will only use this a few months. Got the charger for less than $10.00 shipped.
